With the new tau codex still months away, I was wondering if anyone had any good viable tau lists. Post any lists you've had success with here.

I originally made this list to combat Eldar, but after i used it against them and won i used it against space wolves, beat them turn two. It works really well, i put both shas'el's with the Bladestorm team (Burst Cannons and Plasma Rifles) and just JSJ in and out of LOS and cover with the Deathrain (Twin-Linked Missile Pods) pumping out missile shots. The rest you can figure out lol

This list i used against a Grey Knight army. it worked really well aswell, i had almost won on turn two. it end up with his assassin and a HQ left i destroyed everything else and i still have heaps of units left. i used the Piranha to zoom up first turn to try and kill his vechicles ( in this case his storm raven) but i failed the shot i try tol disperse my army out so there was plenty of space between units so no multi-assaults and no one unit getting assaulted, its survives then gets killed in your turn then you get charged again.

@IXLoiero95XI - some of your points costs don't seem to be entirely accurate? Mainly I've just glanced at the HQ suits, but you may want to check that ^^

The only list I play consistently is my all-comers list... it hasn't let me down, but we don't play in a particularly ultra-competitive environment, so YMMV. I know it's not optimal (because of the Ion-head, possibly the slightly larger than usual Kroot squad and the fact that I haven't split the pathfinders into 2 teams with no upgrades), but I'm not aiming for peak competitiveness ^^

I play an aggressive Mech List that's really successful against other Mech list's and MEQ style armies. It does surprisingly well against Necrons and Eldar, but struggles against certain hordes, mainly Tyranids (Warriors are a pain).
